The Phantom, Mandrake, Flash Gordon, Lothar, Karma, Dale Arden, and Dr. Hans Zarkov battle Ming the Merciless and the Cobra. The Phantom seen here is not a member of the Walker family, but rather had the identity passed to him by the last descendant of the original Phantom on his deathbed. Mandrake’s wife Narda has turned evil, becoming the Cobra’s henchwoman and lover. Flash Gordon and company are updated to modern times, and their first meeting here is under different circumstances than their first appearance in the comic strip. Therefore, this series must take place in an AU.
